Luna grows full on Palm Sunday at 10:45 p.m. in Libra.  Libra is about relationships and we will see a  "peak" of events surrounding unions and partnerships.  The planet of aggression receives a steadying hand from the restrictive and disciplining energy of Saturn on the following day.  Mercury conjuncts Mars on Tuesday supercharging communications with the need to vent and release feelings of frustration.  


Mercury is still in retrograde so his connection with the planetary energies in Aries is for the purpose of integrating information and experiences from the past.  If you're feeling frustrated and angry examine what events in your life have brought you to this current situation and set your intentions on the change that you need.  Mars is about assertive action and Mercury is helping you to better understand your needs and wants.


The cosmic soup suggests an apropos time for working on your relating skills.  What do you bring to the table when in conflict?  Conflict when approached from the desire to better understand another's viewpoint can be a cleansing and ultimately strengthening experience.   

Wednesday brings a softer perspective with the Sun making a pleasant alignment with compassionate Neptune.  The sun then slips into grounded and luxury loving Taurus on Thursday just before Venus joins the party in Aries on Friday the 21st.

ARIES:  You may be very occupied with personal projects and goals.  The Full Moon asks you to spend time with your partner and work out any missed signals that may have arisen while you've been so involved well, with you!  Remind yourself that you are still gathering data this month and will have the go ahead in May for new initiatives.  Change is needed.

TAURUS:  Full Moon fever illuminates the area symbolizing your work, your health and well being. Heightening your levels of self-care is a good idea this week as you may find yourself energetically run down.  Take the time to investigate re-occurring health issues and commit to making self-care a priority.   If work feels frustrating remember that this too shall pass and renumerate on how you can contribute to a healthier functioning work place or, if needed, to find another position that allows you to fully contribute your talents and abilities.

GEMINI:  Friends from the past may be popping up in your "now".  One friendship or group association may give you pause for thought around the Full Moon and present some sort of fear based dilemma.  This is about your self-confidence and is a time to engage in high levels of self-care.Take comfort in knowing that any reservations you have will smooth themselves out by mid-week.  Expect energetic exchanges mid-week when Mars supercharges your communications.

CANCER:  Any blockages you are experiencing around family relationships requires a different and innovative move on your end.  There is some fear around this so push through those self-limiting belief habits, open your heart and engage with the problem from a healthy stance of seeking compassionate resolution.  This feels very emotional for you Crab.  Take it easy on yourself and others.


LEO:  Limiting habits of thought are at the bottom of your current dilemma.  You want love, excitement and adventure, but your outcomes are reflecting your mental thought patterns.  A shift is needed here. You can't continue with the old limiting beliefs and expect to be the recipient of wild hair raising expansive opportunities.  Design your fantabulous life Leo but remember that your inner environment reflects the outer...not the other way around.


VIRGO:  Innovative approaches are pulling and pushing at you in the areas of financial arrangements including loans, taxes, debt and business deals.  Your need is to keep all income sources secure but "know" that there are creative options out there calling out for change.  More information comes your way at the Full Moon but take your time implementing.  Plan for May as the time for definitive and binding agreements.


LIBRA:  Feeling a little overpowered by others Scales?  You have a veritable platoon in your opposite sign of Aries.  This can feel like "pressure" from others who may not have your best interests at heart.  Perception is everything and viewing this from the stance of strengthening your commitment to self and what you know to be true is advised during the Full Moon in your sign.  The pressures start to dissipate this week but please do engage in high levels of self-care during this challenging period.


SCORPIO:  Things happen that are beyond our control and can add a level of anxiety to our day to day well being.  During this Full Moon cycle you are encouraged to balance your need for rest, downtime, and reestablishing a sense of peace, with the demands of your workplace and others needs.  Work IS invigorating and unpredictable but you also need the reprieve of retreating to your favorite "safe place" for a little spiritual R&R.


SAGITTARIUS:  The energy ruling your partnerships is in retrograde dangling appealing tidbits your way.  By May you will have a clearer idea of which tasty morsels are to your liking and which ones are not.  View this month as a priming the well period that will yield more reliable sources of water next month.  A leadership opportunity may be available at the Full Moon if you can keep your equilibrium and sense of decorum on balanced footing.


CAPRICORN:  Is contention arising amongst the family ranks?  You know change is needed in your important familial relationships but there is a fear that is dogging you.  Baggage is a term used when we have unresolved issues from the past that are prohibiting joy in our now.  What needs to be brought into the light of day and cleared out to allow for a happier existence?  That is the question as the Moon grows Full.  Do the legwork and emancipate yourself.  The sun's move into Taurus provides a mellower vibe in which to clear out those snarly cobwebs.


AQUARIUS:  Please do take it easy this week as you are moving from point A to point B.  There is a great deal of energy gathered in your transportation and communication area which sometimes lead to distractions resulting in parking and speeding tickets.  Take it slow and easy when traveling. On a deeper level you are experiencing some frustrations or obstacles around your beliefs and communications with others.  Your plans may need further refining or you may need a different avenue in which to deliver them.


PISCES:  Deep inner movement is taking place for you under the surface at a level that leaves others unaware.  The blockage that you feel between your self-esteem and values is in direct conflict with what you perceive to be your partner's needs and wants.  This can also manifest as commissions being withheld or income tax payouts that exceeded your original assumption.
